"Thank you for your concern and suggestions. I taught at a small private Christian school. I don't want to continue teaching. I live in a small town where jobs are hard to come by. Moving seems like an insurmountable task. I agree I just need to…"

How to start over?

 I just found out that I lost my job of 15 years. It's hitting me hard as it's another major loss. Not only will it be a financial hardship, but I will also be losing my church family and friends. I don't know what to do or how to start a new career. My husband died suddenly 10/14.  He was my strength. He should be here to help me through this. See More

"I have found that the exhausting anxiety leading up to a major grief event has been worse than the actual event. Don't know why. Has it been that way for anyone else? I think you should go and have a good time with your daughter remembering and…"

"It hurts so badly to be left alone to deal with every day life on top of intense grief. But we must go on. I know Eddie would hate to see me in such deep sorrow and would only want me to be happy. His number 1 concern during our 23 year marriage was…"

"So sorry, Annette, that you had to join this group. We just hang out and try to support each other through the daily, weekly, monthly struggles.  My husband died suddenly 6 months ago tomorrow. This past week I finally purchased a cemetery…"

"The group I attended was nice. It just happened to be an older age group. I'll stick with it for a bit; it's comforting to be around people who understand. "
